    Fdisk

    Im trying to run fdisk on my XP box. I got the files from a site, and Ive tried running them from the floppy, and copied the file onto the HD, but I cant get it to run?

    Ive tried fdisk, and fdiks.exe also, with /status, and it doesnt work... Do I have to change permissions on it or something?

    Thanks
